As someone who has more than a passing familiarity with Second Amendment activism, the "South Carolina Responsible Journalism Registry Law" was immediately recognizable as a provocation to the media over its reporting on gun control demands. Unfortunately, a number of journalists showed themselves to be woefully unfamiliar with the gun-rights argument about regulating the First Amendment to match the way gun-control advocates want to regulate the Second Amendment, as could...

    the murder rate was cut nearly in half from 7 per 100,000 in 1993 to 3.6 per 100,000 in 2013. Over the same period, overall gun deaths (including accidents and suicides) have fallen by one-third from 15.2 to 10.6 per 100,000. In spite of this, Pew reports, the American public believes that homicides and gun deaths are increasing in the United States. Those who think violence is getting worse should probably watch less television and look around them instead. The murder rate in the US is currently similar to 1950s levels. Meanwhile, the number of privately owned guns (and gun...

Fannin kept his cool while keeping the 61-year-old suspect, Horn, on the ground at gunpoint, the video obtained by WSB-TV shows. He also had plenty of time to lecture Horn about nearly becoming a victim as a team of police officers arrived.
